[Today’s podcast episode is about how to create a positive future. You can check it out here.]
Today’s post is inspired by a wonderful soul named Drew.
My car battery died today, and I lost my wallet a few days ago. There was no way to call roadside assistance, nor pay for a new battery. In addition, most of my friends and family were busy (since it was a weekday), and to top it off, I didn’t have any jumper cables. As you can imagine, this could’ve been a very negative day.
However, I’m a student of self-awareness; self-awareness is the only aspect of our lives that we have 100% control over. I started to break my old thought patterns, and focused on the positive. My car broke down, but at home. I don’t have a wallet, but I have checks. And who knows, maybe I’ll meet a person who will inspire, and be inspired.
And sure enough, that’s EXACTLY what happened.
Now, you probably want to know what happened, but it’d be very difficult for me to explain the series of events in the following hour; mostly because I really don’t have a logical explanation. The universe was just moving.
But what I can do is something that is probably more important: to take some energy from that moment, and share it with you my friend. This energy includes hope, gratitude and positivity; that no matter what you’re enduring in life now, if you choose to keep believing in yourself and keep working, the future is bright my friend. Your victories are for you, and you alone. Bring the sunglasses, and let today be a snapshot to remember when you look back tomorrow.
